Brown and Storey Architects of Toronto in collaboration with Rob Wright of Daedalus Design are creating Toronto’s newest public green space, to be located on the south side of King St West between Shaw Street and Strachan Ave. Massey Harris Park is part of a $100 million redevelopment by Canderel Stoneridge, which includes condominium project DNA (Downtown Next Address) and the Massey Harris Lofts.
“It will become a gathering spot for young and old, a way to get from one place to another and will be defined by a series of self-contained areas perfect for reading, intimate chats or leisurely reflection,” says project architect James Brown. The City of Toronto anticipates Massey Harris Park to open in July of this year.
